New and Improved Binging

Last night I binged before bed. But I am not in despair: the contents of my binge were a small juice glass full of carrot juice, three dried prunes, and a scant teaspoonful of peanut butter. Less than 200 calories--probably less than 150 calories. Binging is not a behavior I endorse and I don't want to do it every night, but I consider what a binged USED to mean in my world: rapidly consuming about 2000-3000 calories in 30 to 45 minutes and stumbling off to bed in a hyperglycemic haze.
I have some new confidence that I can limit and stop a binge. Plus it helps that I don't keep anything too destructive crazy in the house!
